Relevance to General Practice

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common and serious mental disorder, associated with a twofold increase in mortality rate and significant impairment in quality of life. 
ADHD is associated with substantial mental and physical comorbidities, and much stigma. 
Patients often describe treatment with stimulant medication as being ‘life changing’. 
Effective treatment decreases mortality and comorbidities, and improves quality of life. 
GPs are well placed to identify patients with ADHD and refer for specialist treatment.

Learning outcomes
  • Identify features of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) as it presents in general practice
  • Screen a patient for possible ADHD
